Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (6 ):
Kids say (32 ):

Quantum of Solace is a very good "B" title that's definitely worth a weekend rental if you're a fan of James Bond or stealthy action games. It looks great, thanks to the renowned Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare engine, delivering high-definition characters that resemble Daniel Craig and Dame Judy Dench (and impressive cut-scene sequences) as well as good-looking environments, such as trains, Venetian courtyards, rooftops and a museum.

Quantum of Solace doesn't really offer anything new to the genre, plus the short single-player campaign might disappoint those looking for something meatier, but the faithful 007 experience with recognizable characters and locations and many multiplayer modes make it a worthy adventure.
